Classes & Groups

Book Discussion Group:

Who: Adults of any age who are interested in learning about aging through reading books and participating in a casual, therapist-led discussion.

What: “Emily, Alone” by Stewart O’Nan (2011)

Where: 1125 SE Madison Street, Suite 102, Portland, OR 97214

When: Friday, May 3, 2019 from 10:30 AM to 12:30 PM. Space is limited and advanced registration is required.

Cost: $25 per person. A limited number of reduced fee spaces are available—please just ask!

Why: As a psychologist who specializes in working with older adults, I often get asked about recommendations for books about aging. My hope with this group is that we can use what we learn in these books to inspire ourselves to age as well as possible. This group is also a way to connect with others in a friendly, supportive environment.

I want to know more about the book discussion!

Resilient Aging Roundtable:

Who: Adults age 60 and older who are interested in learning about the psychological and social aspects of aging well, and who want to connect with others who have a shared interest in exploring how to thrive in later life.

What: Each 90-minute meeting will include a brief informational presentation, followed by a facilitated discussion.

Where: 1125 SE Madison Street, Suite 102, Portland, OR 97214

When: Every 2 weeks beginning March 25, 2019, with 6 meetings total

Cost: $150.00 for the entire series of 6 meetings ($25 per meeting), payable at the first meeting

Why: Contrary to popular belief, old age is more than wrinkles and rocking chairs! We spend a lot of time, money, and attention on biomedical “cures” for aging and beauty products that help us to “defy” aging. We’ve made a lot of progress towards adding years to our lives, but what if we started focusing on adding life to our years? I designed this group to help you (1) get clear on what “successful” aging means to you and (2) learn how to begin taking steps towards that vision.

Contact me if you are interested in participating in the Spring group.

Save me a seat at the Roundtable!
